YE KNOW NOTHING AT ALL
By Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.
There are three things that atheists,
agnostics, and Christ rejectors cannot answer: “Who moved the huge stone from the tomb
of Jesus of Nazareth? Where was the body of Jesus? Why did Saul of Tarsus convert to Christ and
lose his life preaching the Gospel?”
THEY GAVE THE SOLDIERS
“Now the next day, that followed the
day of the preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees came together unto
Pilate, Saying, Sir, we remember that the deceiver said, while He was alive,
After three days, I will rise again. Command therefore that the sepulchre be
made secure until the third day, lest His disciples come by night and steal Him
away, and say unto the people, He is risen from the dead; so the last error
shall be worse than the first.
“Pilate said unto them, ye have a
watch; go your way, make it as sure as you can. So they went, and made the sepulchre
sure, sealing the stone, and setting a watch.” (Matt.27: 62-66)
How much MONEY did the Jewish
Sanhedrin pay the soldiers guarding the tomb of Jesus, to lie and say they[MS1] [MS2] fell asleep while the
disciples rolled the stone away and stole the body? Generally, it all ends with GREED.
How long would it take to break the
Roman Seal, roll away the huge stone, leave his clothes in the tomb? Through
all that noise and activity, trained Roman soldiers were sound asleep? We know
that the Rabbis gave Judas Iscariot thirty pieces of silver to betray Jesus
Christ. They gave the guards much money. How much is LARGE money?
BRIBERY IS LYING: IT IS
A HUGE SIN!
Satan, the first liar, deceived Eve into
believing that if she and Adam disobeyed the Creator, they would become like gods.
The word devil means Liar. Bribery is Sin! The Jewish Sanhedrin promised
to bribe the Roman authorities if they learned the true story
about them seeing the angels of God and being struck down to the ground by
their awesome presence!
Final question: Why did the
Jewish Leaders hate Jesus of Nazareth so much? Was it because He uncovered
their hypocrisy, or more? Or, was it because Satan was in control of their
thoughts, actions, and deeds?
JESUS called Himself the Son of God.
He was born to die as God’s pascal Lamb, to save the world as our Saviour. We
know that Satan convinced Jewish authorities to CRUCIFY Jesus. We also
know that they crucified Him because of ENVY. Sometimes, however, we give the Devil
too much credit! He wasn’t that smart when he tried to overthrow Almighty God
in the beginning and was CAST out of Heaven with his rebel angel host!
PRIDE MAKES PEOPLE STUPID!
The High Priest Caiaphas that year,
spoke prophetically because he was moved by the Holy Spirit. He said, “Ye
know NOTHING at all. Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that
ONE MAN should die for the people, and the whole nation perish not.
“And this he spake not by himself; but
being High Priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that
nation: but not for that nation only, but that also that He should gather
together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad. Then from that
day forth they took counsel together for to put Him to death.” (John
THEY KNOW NOTHING AT
He was right! The Jews knew nothing
at all when they rejected their Redeemer! The Muslims know nothing at all when
they reject Jesus the Messiah. And when they lie about another man being
crucified instead of Jesus of Nazareth, in spite of the meticulous recording of
Jewish scribes of that historic event and the actual record of the crucifixion
by Roman Authorities.
Their religion is built upon blatant
falsehood recorded by a man who could not read or write. Mohammed wrote that
Miriam (Mary, the mother of Jesus) was the same Miriam who was
the sister of Moses!
The Evolutionists, Agnostics and
Christ rejectors KNOW NOTHING at all, when they close their eyes and ears
to the truth of God’s Word. The politicians who hate the Gospel of Jesus
Christ so much that they are willing to change God’s Laws on Marriage, Abortion,
and Sexual Perversion to please voters in an election, KNOW NOTHING at all!
CAIAPHAS WAS RIGHT: JESUS WAS BORN TO DIE!
Caiaphas the ancient Jewish High
Priest was right: They know nothing at all. Liars, thieves,
drunkards, and sexual perverts KNOW NOTHING at all. One
day when all Christ rejectors stand before Almighty God for Judgment, they will
be judged for the greatest SIN of all - REJECTING JESUS CHRIST, who shed His
precious and holy BLOOD for us all on a Roman Cross on the hill called Golgotha
outside the city wall of Jerusalem[MS3] !
PROOF OF CHRIST'S RESURRECTION!
WE MUST WARN EVERYONE
THAT JUDGMENT IS COMING!
The Bible states: “Let this mind be
in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who being in the form of God, thought
it not robbery to be equal with God: made Himself of no reputation, and took
upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being
found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death,
even the death of the CROSS.
“Wherefore God also hath highly
exalted Him and given Him a NAME which is above every name: That at the name of
Jesus every knee should bow, of things in Heaven, and things in earth; that
every tongue should CONFESS that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the
Father.” (Phil.2: 5-11).
“Forasmuch then as we are the
offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or
silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device. And the times of this
ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men to REPENT: Because He
hath appointed a DAY in the which He will judge the world in righteousness by
that Man whom He hath ordained; whereof He hath given assurance unto
all men, in that He hath raised Him from the dead.” (Acts 17:29-31)
“…But now once in the end of the
world, hath He (Christ) appeared to put away SIN by the sacrifice of Himself.
And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the Judgment: so
Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for
Him shall He appear the second time without sin unto salvation.” (Heb. 9:26-28)
CHIEF SHEPHERD SOON TO APPEAR!
“But the end is come of all things
are at hand; be ye therefore sober and watch unto prayer. Above all things have
fervent charity among yourselves: for charity (agape love) shall cover the
multitude of sins. For the time is come that judgment must begin at the House
of God; and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey
not the Gospel of God. And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the
ungodly and sinner appear?
“And when the Chief Shepherd shall
appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away. Humble
yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you. Casting all your cares upon Him for He
careth for you.
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary, the Devil, as a roaring lion , walketh about, seeking whom he may devour; whom resist steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.” (1 Peter 4: 7,8; 5:4, 6-9). God bless you, my friend! Amen.
